Derrumbes Tamaulipas Ensemble Mezcal, 750ML
Derrumbes Tamaulipas is one of the few mezcals exported from Tamaulipas. Unfortunately, this region of Mexico is considered extremely unsafe and travel warnings were issued in 2016 and 2017 warning visitors to the state of it’s grave danger. Despite this, Maestro Mezcalero Cuauthemoc Jacquez creates stunning mezcal. This mezcal is an Ensemble of 3 different agave: Univittata, Funkiana, and Americana. Of these three agave, the agave Americana is the only varietal that can be found outside of Tampaulipas.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
From Oaxaca, to Michoacan and beyond, Derrumbes tend to cook their agave in stone pits underground (unless it's their San Luis Potosi expression which uses a 'horno' like small traditional Tequila producers) using black oak to give a light smokiness which brings out the fruit, mineral or herbal notes depending on the type of agave used. Unique fermentation processes include; underground tanks lined with pine wood and distillation via a wooden still, all of which guarantee some of the most intriguing and unique aromas and flavors to be experienced in Mezcal.
